Leah Still arrives in Cincy to see father Devon play for first time

Thursday night’s game against the Cleveland Browns will be one of the most important games that Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still will ever play in. Not just because the Bengals are playing to hold on to first place in the AFC North, but because Leah, the four-year-old daughter of Still will be in the stands to see her dad play an NFL game for the first time ever.

Leah and Devon’s story is well known. The adorable little girl hasn’t been able to watch her dad yet this season because she’s been in Philadelphia where she’s being treated for stage 4 neuroblastoma, a form of pediatric cancer. Devon has spent the past five months deeply involved with his daughter’s care, and her fight through surgery and chemotherapy after doctors found a cancerous growth in her abdomen. “It will probably be the most special game I’m ever going to play because I know my daughter is going to be here to watch me play,” the third-year player from Penn State said.

During Thursday’s game, Leah will be front and center as the Bengals are scheduled to make a donation of $1.25 million to pediatric research between the first and second quarters of the game. The Bengals raised the money from the sales of Still’s jersey over the period of two months. Leah arrived at the airport late Wednesday night, ending a long journey to watch her dad. -
